A picture taken on December 9, 2012 shows a pit head (foreground) and a general view of the Nord-Pas de Calais mining basin, in Loos-en-Gohelle, in northern France, listed as World Heritage by UNESCO. The site bears testimony to the quest to create model workers’ cities from the middle of the 19th century to the 1960s and further illustrates a significant period in the history of industrial Europe.
